Blackstar HT Venue Series Stage 60 60W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amplifier MKII Black (Refurbished)

The Blackstar HT Stage 60 112 MKII Guitar Amplifier is a selected duet of EL34s that delivers 60-watt of glorious valve power through a high-quality Celestion speaker, making for a combo that will deliver every night, even in the most testing live environment. The ’boutique’ style clean channel is extremely versatile with two modes - ‘British Class-A’ and ‘dynamic US’. Each of the two ISF-equipped overdrive channels allows a further two modes. The Power Reduction feature allows further flexibility, by allowing the guitarist to attenuate to 10 percent of the 60 watts of power also making the HT Stage 60 MKII perfect for home and studio use. This is a certified refurbished product backed by a 90-day warranty.
Ground-Breaking New Clean Channel
After more than 3 years of intensive R and D and market research, HT Venue MKII flaunts its new ground-breaking clean channel. Housing two unique voices, one voice based upon classic American circuits and the second based on a timeless British tone.
Professional USB Recording Output
The simplest way to get valve character and tone in your recordings. USB connection on the HT Venue MKII allows for sending up to 4 channels of guitar signal, dry, preamp out, and stereo emulated out into your DAW. Two further outputs on the rear, a stereo jack socket, and a balanced XLR, also allow the speaker-emulated signals to be connected to external devices, perfect for practicing or live usage.
Richer More Responsive Overdrives
Outputting two lavish, punchy, and reactive voices on its Overdrive channels, the high-gain voices encapsulate a tight, focused tone borrowing from its predecessor. These two voicings help to supply the player with everything they need from an overdrive channel, creating a broad and diverse palette of overdrive tones.
The MKII’s clean channel offers two unique voices for the ultimate clean tone quality and flexibility. One is based on classic American circuits and the second is based on a classic British tone. The Voice switch reconfigures the preamp voicing, EQ, and valve gain structure, as well as the power amplifier damping. This produces a bright, tight, and clean but solid bass response for the American tone and a highly responsive ‘chime’ with a looser bottom for the British tone that can be pushed into the midrange when driven hard. All clean channels now include Bass, Treble, and a Voice switch.
Richer, Fuller, and more responsive, HT Venue MKII boasts two voices on its Overdrive channels with high-gain voices being tight and focused, drawing on the original award-winning HT Venue Series. These two voices provide a broad palette of overdriven tones. When switching between channels, the amplifier will recall the specific Voice setting last used on that channel. The Overdrive voices are characterized by a tone that is high in gain but avoids any of the detached top-end ‘fizz’ often found in other designs. This is a result of unique preamplifier and power amplifier shaping techniques, which also benefit the player in the way the overdrives clean up beautifully as the guitar volume is reduced. Even in the most extreme settings, the Overdrive voices remain natural sounding.
Pro Features
The patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) control is unique to Blackstar Amplification and represents a major step forward in tone-shaping flexibility. The ISF control shifts the response of the three control tone stack between, a US-type response at one end, and the other, a UK-type response. Importantly, in between the two extremes lies an infinite number of alternative tone choices that would be otherwise unavailable. The amplifier features naturally sounding digital reverb that can be adjusted via the Reverb control on the front panel or turned on and off via the optional 5-way foot controller. A switch on the rear panel selects between ‘Dark’ and ‘Light’. The Dark setting is based on a room reverb and the Light setting is based on a plate reverb.
Power Reduction
A switchable power reduction circuit has been included with the HT Venue MKII models giving reliable, transparent attenuation down to 10 percent of the amp’s rated power. This means that the full tonal depth of the EL34 power stage can be enjoyed at any volume, retaining the distinctive sound of power valves working hard, making the HT Venue MKII perfect for any live or recording situation.
Footswitch Flexibility
All modes are foot-switchable, resulting in the widest possible selection of stage-accessible valve tones and foot-switchable boosts on all channels. The supplied 2-way footswitch enables the selection of the Clean and Overdrive channels and the two voices on each Channel. The optional 5-way foot controller enables instant access to all channels and voices, plus the global boost function and Reverb switching for maximum control.
Compact and Portable
All the HT Venue MKII products have been reengineered to make them more compact and portable with the regular gigging guitarist in mind.
